Lack of Momentum
Since July 29, the Bitcoin worth has been on a free fall, dropping from $8,300 to $6,350 inside a two-week interval. Different main cryptocurrencies and tokens skilled a extra steeper drop within the worth, dropping 30 to 40 p.c of their worth in merely 12 days.
All through the previous eight months, since January, the cryptocurrency market and its most dominant cryptocurrency Bitcoin have seen comparable traits and worth actions play out, in equivalent ranges.
On February 6, the worth of BTC dropped to $6,000, however recovered to $11,000 inside a month. In April, the worth of BTC fell once more to the $6,000 area, in a interval of 30 days. In Might, BTC peaked at round $11,000, solely to drop again right down to $6,000 a month later. The value of Bitcoin has been shifting in between $6,000 and $10,000 since January, as if large-scale traders in a market exterior of the general public cryptocurrency change market have been manipulating the worth of BTC.
Primarily based on the suspicious motion of BTC in that worth vary and the truth that the over-the-counter (OTC) market is 2 to 3 instances bigger than the cryptocurrency change market, it’s tough to dismiss the opportunity of worth manipulation.
Furthermore, the drop within the worth of BTC has all the time been timed precisely after an vital piece of occasion or information, such because the disapproval of the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF or the VanEck ETF, which on their very own are evidently not adequate to impression the cryptocurrency market in any main method.

Some analysts have steered that Coinbase might combine Ripple (XRP) within the close to future, however the market has seen comparable rumors prior to now, which by no means managed to materialize.
Given the hype round Ripple and EOS being added to Coinbase is rising, it’s probably that the market sees the worth of XRP and EOS rise within the close to future, however inevitably drop when Coinbase clarifies on its stance on the 2 cryptocurrencies, as soon as once more.
